Sally and Ted were married on a beautiful day in Aspen, Colorado. Their wedding just goes to show you, the beauty of your wedding day will shine through, no matter the bumps along the way!
from the beautiful bride ...
The weather in Aspen was perfect the entire week of our wedding, including the morning of ... then the clouds started rolling in and an hour before we had rain, hail, and thunder. Our guests were to ride the gondola to the top of Aspen Mountain and when it was time for me and the bridal party to go up, it was closed, so we traveled to the top in a suburban. When we reached the top though, it was spectacular and the clouds were clearing--luckily our guests could ride the gondola! There were a few sprinkles at the start, so our guests were provided with white umbrellas which turned out to be the perfect touch! As the ceremony began, the sun burst out of the clouds and we even had a rainbow! We couldn't have dreamed that up!
The altar at the site of the ceremony was gorgeous -- it was made of birch and had flowers spilling out and up to the cross that was made of birch as well. It was a stunning focal point for the ceremony!

Having the wedding atop Aspen Mountain, we didn't want to go overboard and compete with the spectacular scenery. Our idea was to bring the outdoors in, so we had clouds of baby's breath hanging from the ceiling, birdcages serving as light fixtures, and lots of fun details using birch and branches and the fire going in the big fireplace.
Their brilliant photographer, Todd Pellowe was there to capture every stunning moment ... as well as a few other special memories!
Sally's favorite part of the reception? The clouds of baby's breath!
Ted and Sally's glorious wedding and reception took place at Aspen Mountain Club & Sundeck.
Sally's advice when planning a destination wedding? "Make it as much of a reflection of you and your fiancee as possible, but don't sweat the small stuff! People are going to remember the feeling they had being a part of your celebration more than the details of the wedding itself."
Ahhh ... so pretty!!! Congratulations to Sally and Ted on a totally beautiful wedding!
